    The clear coat on my front bump is beginning to peel in a very small area under my p/side fog light-about the size of a dime. When I look at it closely, it appears to have been resprayed near that area, but I'm not certain. It isn't visible enough to appear in a picture, but I plan to take it to the dealer. It's an '08 Desert Sand with just under 17K miles. Anyone with similar issues?

    Maybe it has some kind of clear bra on instead?

    No, it definitely isn't a clear bra, I wish I had that installed but it's too pricey. It's just peeling clear coat. Any idea on what the warranty coverage is on clear coat?

    I haven't made an appointment yet cause my schedule for the next couple of weeks is busy. Please keep me posted, either here or by PM.
